Glen Check, Love X Stereo, Rock N Roll Radio at Brick & Mortar Music Hall

Korean pop is huge every in the world except the US. Which is fantastic for us Americans, because then we can see some genuine world class superstars in a super tiny venue like Brick & Mortar Music Hall!

Skaters, Team Spirit, Panic Is Perfect at Bottom Of The Hill

Berlin, Ownership at Bimbo’s 365 Club

Berlin were one of the most criminally underrated bands of the 80’s. They had a monster hit with the power ballad “Take My Breath Away”, but that’s only a small part of their sound. This is going to be an epic new wave dance party that will be perfect for anyone that wants to truly dork out.

Perfect Pussy, Wild Moth, Happy Driving at Rickshaw Stop

St Vincent, Noveller at The Fox Theater – Oakland

Words can’t describe how good this current St Vincent tour is. It’s one of the most impressive pieces of performance I have ever seen by anyone. She has a total command of the stage, and is, simply put, blowing my mind right now. She’s as if somebody combined Prince, David Byrne, Marnie Stern, and Snow White into one singular musical superhero capable of ruling the world with her guitar and hypnotic stare.

Wakey! Wakey!, Jillette Johnson at Brick & Mortar Music Hall

Death, Audacity at The Chapel

This veteran Detroit punk band has been riding high off the success of their documentary, A Band Called Death. These guys are amazing, and the live show has been fantastic! I highly recommend seeing these folks at The Chapel. It’s going to be great.

Monday, March 24th

Kraftwerk at The Fox Theater – Oakland

Wednesday, March 26th

Lorde, Lo Fang at The Fox Theater – Oakland

Probably the highest demand show of the year that isn’t Prince. And for good reason! Lorde is an brilliant songwriter, and only soulless people that can’t fathom the idea of a 16 year old genius seem to dismiss her.
